Year 5 and 6 Quadkids Competition at Newlands Girls School
Wow wow wow, first week back, another competition and on the day of Eid, this time it was an Athletics competition, this did not put off some extra volunteers on the day, I have to say I am so proud of the impeccable behaviour of our children at Riverside, yet again they demonstrated a fabulous attitude towards the competition and they gave their best in all areas. Thank you particularly to the children like Mehnaz, Nora, Kylie, Oskar and Andrei that literally stepped in at the last minute!! Also a big well done to Jayden, Josh, Hakima and Lucie for already being available for the competition.
The children were split into groups and competed against other schools in a 75m sprint, vortex throw, standing long jump and 600 m. I have to say, I can see an improvement in the general fitness of our children, must be all those miles a day that they are running during school!!
Although we were not placed in the top 3 boys or girls, (we will be receiving our results soon) on several occasions we managed to come first in our races, so well done to the team, I have included the photos of our wonderful children and I am sure I am not the only proud person to see these children trying their best.
